Unit tests don't run using Active State on windows; too many backticked commands.

-- TWiki:Main/CrawfordCurrie - 28 Jun 2007

After eliminating the most simple failures, the following tests still fail for unexplained reasons:

  1. Fn_SEARCH (something to do with quotes on the command line)
  2. ClientTests
  3. FormDefTests
  4. RcsTests
  5. RegisterTests
  6. RenameTests
  7. SemiAutomaticTestcaseTests - seems to be related to \r\n
  8. StoreTests
  9. TimeTests
Many of these failures are probably due to bits of the test suite failing. CC

Most of the above are fixed. There are still failures, but they are more subtle and require deeper analysis. Dropping priority to Normal; anyone who has an interest in supporting Windows as a platform for TWiki should pick this up; I am not planning to do any more on it.


Raised to Urgent just to ping for some action on this.


Attached latest; 778 of 792 pass (so 14 fail) - 9 Sep 2007


same result on OSX - its due to both of them having non-case sensitve file systems by default.

Fixed strange effect due to quotes. i can't really explain it.

-- TWiki:Main.CrawfordCurrie - 24 Sep 2007

Down to the last 6 failures now. These are due to two things; case insensitvity in the filesystem, and something wierd in the time handling.

-- TWiki:Main.CrawfordCurrie - 24 Sep 2007

Clearly no-one cares sufficiently about Windows or OSX to invest any time in regular testing (I for sure don't) so reducing to Normal priority.
